Currently, the greatest need we have at the Hub is for sorting donations these donations and getting them to other relief centers.  If you are still interested in volunteering outside of sorting donations, here are other opportunities:

  • To volunteer for mucking or clean-up within Houston, email volunteer@recoveryhoustontx.com.

  • For transport, research, or phone intake, email Help@HoustonReliefHub.org or submit volunteer form at HoustonReliefHub.org.

 

Volunteer FAQ

Is there an age requirement for volunteers?

There is no age requirement. We will find something safe and age-appropriate (probably sorting) for all volunteers.

What if I have physical limitations on lifting/mobility?

We will find something safe and appropriate for all ready and willing volunteers, including sorting and phone banking/research.

What shifts do you need the most? Do I need to sign up for a specific shift?

Truthfully, the need is stable throughout our open hours. We will always be able to find some way to let you be of service. Just show up during one of our shifts and we will be able to use you!

Do I need to sign up or can I just show up?

Signing up is nice, because it allows us to plan ahead, but it is not necessary in the least. You can just show up during our open hours above.
